Using 2 iphones on 1 mac

Because it's easy to understand, relatively easy to implement, and easy to maintain, with low potential for accidentally messing up someone else's set up — it's a good approach. If you don't want to create totally separate user accounts for everyone in the house, you can just create separate iTunes libraries for each person. Using multiple iTunes libraries is a bit like having the separate spaces that the individual user account approach gives you, except in this case, the only thing that's separate is the iTunes library. With this method, each person who uses the computer has their own iTunes library and sync settings.

This way, you won't get music, apps, or movies mixed across iTunes libraries and won't end up with someone else's content on your device by mistake. The downsides of this approach are that parental controls on content apply to all iTunes libraries with user accounts, they're different for each account , so adults are restricted to the most strict settings applied to their kids.

It's also potentially tricky because each user's library is not as totally separate, and so there's potential for some confusion.

Still, this is a good option that's easy to set up. If you're less concerned about mixing the music, movies, apps, and other content put into iTunes by each person using the computer, using the syncing management screen built into iTunes is a solid option. When you choose this approach, you select what content from each of the tabs in the management screen you want on your device. Other people using the computer do the same thing.

The downsides of this technique include that it only allows one setting for parental control of content and it can be imprecise. For example, you might only want some music from an artist, but if someone else adds more of that artist's music, it could end up on your device by mistake.

So, even though it's potentially a bit messier, this is a very easy way to manage multiple iPods. Want to make sure you get just the music you want on your iPod? This technique is as simple as creating the playlist and updating the settings of each device to sync just that playlist.
